In a stunning editorial today, the Providence Journal has accused Gov. Carcieri of hypocrisy. They were right to do so.
"The Carcieri administration is pumping out some industrial-strength hypocrisy these days about casino gambling. The governor ardently opposed a Narragansett Indian casino in West Warwick last year. But he seems to have had no problems over the years with helping to turn the former Lincoln Park into one of the world’s largest casinos — all without putting the matter to the vote of citizens."...
"In retrospect, it seems that some casino foes simply opposed the owners of a Narragansett Indian casino, rather than an expansion of gambling per se."
Some of us have thought the move by Carcieri and his corporate buddies against the Narragansett Indian Casino was racist right from the start. Now, we are convinced.
